Boldness "Highland" sirensis/lamasi
 
Hi all,

I am about to restock my 24X24X36 corner vivarium, where I had kept a pair of Chazuta imitators before. As I want to keep it a bit on the cooler side, I consider highland sirensis/lamasi or a pair of nominat imitators. R. variabilis are also cool, but I'd prefer species where tads can be raised in the vivarium.

In a way, imitators are hard to beat, as they tend to be fairly active and reproduce very well. However, I've always liked the highland sirensis and could potentially obtain a group in the near future (over here in Europe there are regularly bred and available). I have heard that sirensis are rather shy, although the highland form is supposed to be bolder. Now I know that in the end it also depends on the enclosure and the character of the frogs, but has anybody some experience with them and how active they are?

I guess they would also do well in a group. Imitators I would only keep as a pair (or obtain 0.0.4 and sort out a pair later).

Another option would be vanzolinis although they would prefer warmer temperatures. The enclosure would be 68-25C (68-77 F) depending on the height, but I could also raise the temperature a bit.

Thanks for all inputs!

I haven't worked with r. Lamasi, but vanzos are great frogs IME. They seem to be pretty hit or miss in terms of boldness, but mine are bolder than my leucs. Highly prolific as well, I have 1.2 in a 12x12x18.

Also my tanks are in my basement, and I'm pretty sure the temperature range you have is very similar to my own.

I keep my Vanzo's at about 72-75 degrees that seems to work them. One of the things about them is the singing which is not obtrusive very pleasant chirps. They are very active but one of them will hide when I come in the room. Very hardy frogs. Worth it!

Thank for the insights - so vanzolinis are also in the race!

I keep serensis, you will see them when you feed, otherwise low light periods, until they get comfortable.
